|I got a prize for showing up!|
My First Vegan Thanksgiving was a huge success! Everything was gorgeous and beautiful. I wasn't so worried about me because I happen to love very much vegan food and food prepared by mine own hand, but I was worried for the family who also then happened to have their own first vegan Thanksgiving. Fortunately, the evening surrounded by caring and loving family and the blessings that we have all had the past year did come accompanied with good food. And the best vegan pumpkin cheesecake of all time ever. Prepared by The Husband's own hand. After all, he is good at providing cheese.
|A filled table is a happy one. I love all of these people.|
Self talk in all forms can be both helpful and harmful. I joked about either cutting myself or burning myself over the holiday. I laughed at my last weigh in that I'd gain 3 pounds over the holiday. I tittered that there was no experience yet that would get me off the pizza. In their own odd ways, all of these things came to pass.
The moral is to joke about those millions of dollars you bet will never come your way.
|December goal, more this and less stitches.|
For all the bad and the three stitches I like to think of as 87... I am truly blessed. And there are blessings yet to come.
I also hope more cheesecake.
|No, I said cheesecake. Not cheese.|
Granted. This is vegan cheese.
